• Make electric vehicles affordable.
    We need to reduce our emissions but electric cars are still out of most peoples' reach financially. If the government is serious about reducing our emissions then steps need to be taken to make electric vehicles affordable. Once electric vehicle ownership has become more commonplace then there is the possibility of a second hand market developing sooner and further improving their affordability in the UK. It needs to happen now!

  • Dual litter & recycling bins in public places.
    This would encourage recycling which would be of benefit to the environment. This would also help to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill sites, especially plastic waste.

  • Plastic Packaging
    The highlight is on the amount of plastic waste found on land and in the oceans. It does not degrade and is harmful to animals and humans. We need to provide for a better future for our planet and future generations.

  • H&F Recycling isn't always going where you think!
    It appears that there isn't enough space and not enough time to take the dust cart back to base, to empty it and start again, so instead bags get mixed up. Such a waste of time recycling! Hammersmith and Fulham is a great council, I am sure this has just slipped through the net, but be great to get it sorted please. So I ask you to sign to politely ask H&F recycling team to: A - organise for there to be 2 distinct dust carts, one for recycling and one for rubbish B - to switch the bigger right side of the current dust carts to be for recycling so there is more space. It's a quick and easy fix, the dust men want it too, but it needs to be authorised from the top. Please don't be complacent about recycling, we can't just do our bit and then forget about where it ends up once it leaves our front door. Please sign. Thanks

  • Plastic children's toys, why aren't they recyclable?
    It is the younger generation who appear to be most concerned about the future of our planet, but as parents of even younger children I am constantly shocked by the amount of plastic used in the production of children's toys, which includes plastic fibres, plastic packaging, and plastic that is never going to go away for at least another few hundred years. We have no idea at the moment what all that plastic is doing to our children's health with them playing with the toys, but then to think that those toys will carry on polluting our environment for so many more years to come just doesn't make sense to me. I feel it would be a great opportunity for the toy manufacturers to demonstrate to our future generations that thinking and acting in an environmentally responsible way will enable them and their children to continue enjoying their toys in a safe and ethical way.

  • Bye-bye to standby
    I have researched this and as advised by the BBC website; the average household has up to 12 gadgets on standby or charging at any one point. Britons waste the equivalent of around two power stations' worth of electricity each year by leaving TV sets and other gadgets on standby. This is just in households alone, where people do have the option to turn TV's and gadgets off standby if educated correctly. It is worrying that every hotel and B&B you visit in the UK, Europe and globally where TV's are located in the room, that they are all left on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. There is no need to keep the TV's on standby and could be turned off fully. Norman Baker, the Liberal Democrat's environment spokesman has calculated that the CO2 emissions from electrical equipment being left on standby are equivalent to 1.4 million long-haul flights. To put it another way, the entire population of Glasgow could fly to New York and back again and the resulting emissions would still be less than that from devices left in sleep mode.

  • Introduce Idling Fines To Stop Needless Pollution
    Every day when i go about my business i see unnecessarily vehicle idling. This is illegal but is not enforced. How many times do you go to your local supermarket and see vehicles just sitting there pumping out there poisonous fumes? Idling needlessly adds to climate change, adds to air pollution, wastes fuel and impacts the health of all. This is even more so for young children breathing in these poison fumes which can ultimately affect there respiratory system and affecting them for life. I regularly remind people of their actions but unfortunately many do not care, with all we know about climate change and the harmful pollutants in vehicle emissions this is simply unacceptable Its time a system was introduced such as the scheme in New York City where citizens can record and report such needless actions so fines can be issued

  • Save the Environment Bill
    Without this legislation in place, in the event of a no deal Brexit, numerous environmental laws will be unenforced and farmers will not be able to apply for funding to help agriculture become more sustainable and undertaken with the intention of helping to mitigate climate change. The consequences are self-evident.
